Each December, the front hallway of Birmingham Falls Elementary School transforms for a special tradition. The Storybook Forest puts the school family in a festive spirit while favorite holiday stories are showcased through decorated trees and student-made ornaments. Students then enjoy listening to these picture books read by special guests including school staff, district-level employees, and community members. This year, the school welcomed guests: FCS Superintendent Dr. Jeff Rose, Area Superintendent Ms. Margaret White, Milton Fire Chief Robert Edgar, Milton Police Chief Rich Austin, Fulton County Commissioner Bob Ellis, Cambridge High School Principal Dr. Edward Spurka, Hopewell Middle School Principal Mr. Michael LeMoyne, Northwestern Middle School Principal Mr. Charles Chester, and many Birmingham Falls staff members. Students were delighted with read-clouds from picture books such as Twas the Night Before Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Snowy Day, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Elf on the Shelf, The Nutcracker, The Polar Express, and many others.
